Based in the United Kingdom, the Muslim dating application “Muzz” has offered to pay the fines imposed on women dressed in a burkini, reveals, this Wednesday, July 20, Le Figaro. An illegal initiative denounced by the Ministry of the Interior and which comes after the confirmation by the Council of State of the prohibition of this religious symbol in the municipal swimming pools of Grenoble.
A new controversy around the burkini. While the Council of State confirmed, on June 21, the ban on wearing the burkini in the municipal swimming pools of Grenoble, a Muslim dating application proposes to pay the fines of women who are fined for this reason, reports Le Figaro.
Believing that the verdict of the Council of State is “unfair”, “Muzz”, an application based in the United Kingdom, wants to relieve the offenders of the amount of the fine, established in France at 135 euros.
“Muzz 100% supports the rights of all French women in their choice of clothing for bathing. For some women it’s a bikini, for many Muslims it’s a burkini. This is why this summer we will reimburse you for all fines for wearing a burkini in France”, writes the Muslim dating application on its website.

A budget of 25,000 euros
For this, “Muzz” has devoted a “budget of 25,000 euros dedicated to fines for wearing the burkini. We will pay any fine that falls within our criteria up to the amount indicated,” she said.
The application, which has more than 6 million members, including several hundred thousand in France, believes that it is aware of the risks.
“The management is ready and is aware that this involves risks from a legal point of view,” said the French team quoted by Actu Grenoble. Nevertheless, for “Muzz”, “it’s an action to help, nothing else”, she defends herself.
